WallCAP Project Archive

Results, information and data from WallCAP have primarily been archived with the Archaeology Data Service (ADS). ADS is the only accredited digital repository for heritage data in the UK, and they provide long-term digital preservation of data. All resources deposited with ADS are Open Access, so all of our archives can be accessed by all, for free!

Our archive has been divided into several sections, described below. 

The overall WallCAP archive can be accessed here: https://doi.org/10.5284/1100068

WallGIS: The interactive map, database files, GIS files and other information linked to the WallGIS, the new database and GIS of all the features of Hadrian’s Wall, can be accessed here: https://doi.org/10.5284/1100071

Heritage at Risk (HAR): the archive of excavation reports, geophysical survey reports, and specialist reports associated with the HAR strand of the project can be accessed here: https://doi.org/10.5284/1100069

Stone Sourcing & Dispersal (SSD): the archive of data and geology guides associated with the SSD strand of the project can be accessed here: https://doi.org/10.5284/1100070

Excavation Reports

Walltown Crags: The excavation report for work carried out by WallCAP staff at Walltown Crags in October 2020 is now available. Check it out for all the details about what we uncovered at the site, it can be downloaded here

Port Carlisle: The excavation report for the evaluation work carried out at Port Carlisle, to determine if the existing field gate could be moved in order to prevent further damage to the standing section of Hadrian’s Wall, is now available. It can be downloaded here. Project staff carried out a further watching brief while the gate was relocated and the section of the Wall was conserved – the report for this work can be downloaded here.

Heddon on the Wall: The excavation report for the excavation work carried out at Heddon on the Wall is now available. This work opened a 2m by 40m trench across the line of the Vallum to examine the surviving remains of the ditch and banks in a ploughed field. The report can be downloaded here

The reports on the excavations at Cambeck and Corbridge are forthcoming, and further reports and information resulting from our fieldwork projects in Spring/Summer 2021 will be made freely available to all when they are completed.
